Oh my God, it's sooo cute :) and so imaginative of you to interpret 100% this way :) You can definitely make a story out of this. The title can be : The Elf who wants to move the mountain :) (and as practice, he do this to his elephant friend everyday hehe :)

Those are some strong shoulders or a light elephant!

Joan Y said...

This is awesome! I love the way the elf is huffing and puffing and the elephant is looking a little worried he might get dropped! It would be a lighter load if the bird flew off!

enigma said...

everyone, thanks!

its nice to hear everyone interpretation of the illo, however the actual story in this illo is that the elephant were scared by the mouse that the elf has to lift him.. you know the saying about how elephants afraid by mice? :D

This is well done and cute. Like the mouse and elephant combination.

Monica said...

Amazing colors, Ella, and a nice composition. I love how the elephant is looking at the little mouse, tense. I also like the shadow of the bird on its back, and how the elf seems to be taking big breaths to carry his friend.
Just lovely and original!

Kstyles said...

He's gotta be 100% fit to carry that elephant. Great work!

Hehehehehe.....lutju...... and inspiring ...

Monica said...

Hi, Ella--

Tarot cards, that's a really cool idea!
As far as size, the illo with the kitties in the drawer is about 20 cm by 13 cm, more or less. I don't have the precise measurements because I haven't got it back from the framers, but that sounds right. I tend to work small...
Hugs :-)
